Mike Bryant of nanochrist.com
Andrea DeBoer of bluevenusmusic.com
Paisley Rae of highheelslofi.com
Taavi Burns, Pelayo Matute & Kirsten Nelson of kirstensandwich.ca
and the 13 open mic folks.
then four songs from High Heels Lo Fi ( highheelslofi.com
have you seen the commercial where the dude is in his car singing badly to Warrant's She's My Cherry Pie on the classic rock radio station, and the girls at the sidewalk cafe give him a weird look, then throw their panties at him? yeah, that dude is Vijay, and he did a KILLER dramatic reading of the song last night. man - i was CRYING i was laughing so hard.
David Clink did the Beatles song Help as a sermon, with Kirsten Sandwich as the choir. David & Pelayo did She Loves You as a conversation between two gruff brits.
Phlip did a punk version of Hair that was hilarious. Allan did Cashmere from the Zep, and All Along the Watchtower, with a mix of seriousness and utter comedy.
Myna Wallin told us some of the history of the song, then ended the night with a poetic interpretation of Stairway to Heaven.
EVERYONE completely knocked it out of the park. i was honoured and dazzled at how seriously everyone took it, and the energy they brought to every single piece.
then there was the 13 folks on the open mic, most were fantastic.
then High Heels Lo Fi took the stage and i just didn't have time to be nervous or even think about anything. i think we played pretty darn well. a few flubbed chords but whatever. when you've only been playing guitar for 7 months and it's your second show, i don't think anyone expects brilliance or perfection. but they did get a great fun time.
